Griffin Penshine has become a wish stealer. How dcid this happen? Given a set of wishing pennies by an old lady, she discovers they are stolen wishes and are therefore cursed. The rules say if she makes a wish for good it will go bad, and if she makes an evil wish it will come true. Griffin must return the pennies to the original owners or to someone who has a wish similar to the wish of the original owner. Maybe it is because I'm a dreamer and have always loved making wishes that made this book so charming to me. The theme of doing something good for the world was a message that ran throughout. I loved the book and can't wait to recommend it to my students.
